Alright, ladies Im gonna need you to take a step back if youre under 58.
All of my fellow tall girls out there share a mutual bonding experience. For decades, societal norms have looked at tall women as not being feminine enough, and many of us have had to deal with those effects.
Luckily, tall women everywhere are shoving this stigma in the trash can, and embracing everything our beautiful height has to offer.
Im not going to lie, beingtall can still be plain old at times. So, for all of you tall queens out there, this ones for you.
Here are eight real struggles only tall girls understand.
1. Meeting New People And Getting The OMG, Youre So Tall Reaction
Really? Ive only spent my whole life being me. Thanks for pointing it out.
2. All Shorts AreToo Short
Screw you too, school dress code. I guess Im wearing pants in this 80 degree weather.
3. Dresses Are The Actual Worst
Dropped something? Forget bending over to get it.
*Cue the embarrassing wiggle-bend maneuver to pick up said item*
4. Youre Always Sleeping In ABed Thats Way Too Short
You thought having your toes out from under the covers was creepy? Try having them hang over the edge of the bed.
Goodbye, comfortable nights sleep.
5. Blankets Are Never Quite Long Enough
Socks in the winter are a tall girls best friend, because you know that blanket isnt long enough to allow for optimal coziness.
6. Random Strangers Ask You For Help
True story: I was looking at jewelry in a store when the woman next to me turned me and said, Can you grab those earrings for me? Youre just so tall.
No way, girl. You can ask for help, but no need to comment on my appearance.
7. Forget Long Sleeves
Everything looks three-quarter length. Its near-unavoidable at this point, but somehow, we pull it off anyway.
8. The High Heels Debate
This one really rubs me the wrong way. As a tall girl, youre expected to listen to everyone elses opinions on whether or not taller-than-average women should be wearing heels.
Thanks, but no thanks. Ill wear heels if I want, and I wont if I dont want to. Take your opinions somewhere else, please.
Being tall has its struggles, but in the end, its a beautiful perk. Go out and own it, girl!
